"In June 1937 she began a flight around the world, flying eastward from Miami, Florida, accompanied by Frederick J. Noonan, a navigator. Their plane disappeared on July 2, while en route from Lae, New Guinea, to Howland Island. An extensive search by planes and ships of the United States Navy failed to discover any trace of the lost flyers, and their fate remains a mystery." © 1993-2003 Microsoft Corporation.

@Mersh: I get the impression that the quoted text (brief bio of Earhart, not a description of this footage) is the part that's copyrighted by Microsoft (maybe copied from Encarta?).
